Mom and I had lunch here - Lasagna and Insalata Ceasre - the food was really good, especially the lasagna (good sized portion). The menu was kind of hard to read - everything in Italian and in a script that was hard to read in...More

A wonderful restaurant. Great food, nice ambience and excellent service -- both by the hostess as well as by our waiter, Ivan. The calamari and the chicken parmigiana were both excellent. Prices quite reasonable. Excellent value for money.

Our greeting was nasty and uncalled for and will keep me away from this restaurant from now on. Salt and pepper hair, woman is in the wrong role. I won’t be back. Their food is very reliable if uninspired. Not worth putting up with her,...More

Didn't get to a traditional timed lunch? Too early for dinner? Your wish for a lighter meal can be aptly satisfied with Il Fornello's Piccolo Pranzo menu. An Italian moniker for a small lunch and only served daily from 2 - 4 pm. Pick a...More
